Listed Building Roof Replacement

Roofs on Historical Listed Buildings in London

If you own or are responsible for the upkeep of a historical listed building in London, keeping its external appearance in excellent condition is essential. There are over 18,000 listed buildings in London so it’s important to know whether your building fits into this category. If it does and your roof is in a state of disrepair, Nunhead Roofing is well-placed to help you: we are skilled in replacing and maintaining the roofs of listed buildings. Many of these roofs are pitched tiled or slate roofs, which we have extensive experience working on.

Our Experience at Oxford University

Our 33 years of experience working on all sorts of UK roofs includes 11 years experience working on the historic buildings of Oxford University. You can rest assured that we know how to handle your listed building’s roof with care. Don’t hesitate to contact us today to discuss the replacement of your listed building’s roof.

Working on listed roofs requires special skills to maintain historic features. Depending on the type of roof, we use clay ridge tiles instead of concrete, Welsh slate, lead on flat roofs, lead as standard in boxed gutters, and lime render on brickwork. These all help achieve the best outcome that meets the requirements of a listed building’s specialised roof.

Listed Building Roof Replacement or Repair

The government maintains a list of thousands of important buildings that have architectural, cultural or historical significance. These are known as “listed buildings” and have gone through a process of application, advice and listing. Renovating these buildings requires extra care as there are strict regulations that must be met, however, we are well-placed to advise you on the best way to repair or replace these roofs.

Roofs on listed buildings often contain chimneys, ridges, ornaments, and intricate internal wooden support structures. These can add further complications to the repair process but don’t pose an insurmountable problem as we have worked with all of these historic features before.

Listed Roof Maintenance

It’s important to keep the roof of your listed building in good condition by maintaining it well. In the unfortunate circumstances where this hasn’t been the case, we can discuss replacing the roof in its original style, be that pitched, slate, or tiled.

The additional paperwork and legislative requirements are something that you will need to bear in mind but you can trust our in-depth industry knowledge and 33 years of experience to help guide you when working with the roof on your listed building.
